Easter Bunny Punch Art Treat Card



I wanted to make an Easter card for each of my three little grand daughters using these cute chocolate carrots I found at the shops...the punch art bunny was inspired by some Easter packaging on some other Easter goodies I bought... I have used 1 3/4 circle punch, small, large and wide ovals and 1/2 inch circles for the eyes...don't think the carrots will last long!
To make the bunny
The head is a 1 3/4 circle punch. To make the ears punch two large ovals and trim them so they are narrower at one end. Punch two small ovals in pink and trim  them so they are also narrower at one end. layer the pink ovals on the large ovals behind the top of the head. To make her arms punch two wide ovals. Trim a little off the bottom of each one and trim each side making it narrower one end. Add pen detail. Stick one of the arms behind the bottom of the head (wide end at bottom). Punch another wide oval for the body and stick it behind the head and the arm. Use a template to cut out an oval then use scissors to cut jagged edges across the ovals width. Place the punch art bunny behind the oval leaving his arm to hang over the sides. Use glue dots to attach the chocolate carrot (or a punch art one) then glue the second arm behind the carrot wrapping it around to the front and attaching with another glue dot. His muzzle was made using a one inch circle punch trimmed top and bottom, rounding the corners. I used a stamp for his mouth but you could draw that by hand. The nose is the heart from the Owl Punch. The eyes are 1/2 inch circles punched in white with 1/4 inch circles punched in black for the pupils. The eye lids are 1/2 inch circles punched in half. I have added lashes with black pen. The colours used are naturals Ivory for the bunny with Blushing Bride for the pink bits. Everything was inked before assembly. Clear as mud!

  8. Professional exterminators possess a distinctive difference, and can easily identify
    a particular species of termites in your home septic from the
    other five hundred species. The exterminator Louisville has got better
    pest removal techniques and the methods and that kind of
    treatment is being preferred by the people. After watching a couple episodes of Billy the Exterminator on A&E, he quickly made the coveted DVR recording list.
